Sue, got a raise at work her current wage was $32.500 a year her new wage is 35.500 a differents of $3.000 per year how do I come up with her hourly wage she is paid is every 26 weeks?

  • Math -

    That is a long time between paydays.

    Figure 52 x 40 = 2080 hours per year.

    The NEW hourly wage would be 35,500/2080 = $17.07 per hour

    The amount of her raise and how often she gets paid are not needed for the answer.
